So, I've been having problems with olive oil for a while. At first I thought it was a matter of adulterated oil, but now I'm starting to think that maybe it's a matter of sensitivity to something in the oil. When I put some of it in my mouth... (more)

Could you tell me what EVOO you use, as I had a bad skin reaction to an adulterated oil, so it's put me off using it at all. I figured that as this was a fairly expensive brand, which one can you trust? I know the fridge test can give you a... (more)

Been craving OO like crazy, but I've avoided EVOO lately due to so many adulterated products on the market. I would go and buy one of the really nice ones but the budget isn't really there at the moment, and I can't find anything at a reasonable... (more)

I actually buy one at Walmart called California Olive Ranch EVOO. It tastes excellent, the best I've personally tried, but I don't know how to test it's adulteration. It almost tastes too good to be true. I don't know if it's cheap for EVOO either... (more)

Some people say to never heat EVOO because... it'll break down and do bad things to you (or something). I haven't really seen any science on this, so I'm wondering what the deal really is. Tonight I roasted some vegetables drizzled with EVOO and... (more)

I know of no good reason why extra virgin olive oil would be a bad cooking oil. Its low PUFA content and polyphenols make it pretty oxidation resistant, and it doesn't have a particularly low smoke point compared to the other fats. The fear of... (more)

I do not live in the U.S. and cannot get EVOO from there. However, I can get any European brand. Please list your favorite ones. I was about to purchase a nice-looking bottle of EVOO from France, when I have noticed a disclaimer in teeny-tiny... (more)

Any portuguese brand. I'm a little biased okay, but i can guarantee you that the EVOO from Portugal is almost 100% produced in a apropriate press, right after the olive picking. They'r called "lagar"(singular) and are localized near the crops, so... (more)

NPR reported a while ago that many EVOO producers are cheating by mixing in other oils to reduce the price. How do you tell if you have a high quality product? Previously, I was using the supermarket brand organic EVOO, almost certainly to be low... (more)

The stuff produced over in Europe and especially Italy is HIGHLY regulated. I realize it won't help you with your Amazon purchase, but when you're at the store, look for bottles with one of these... (more)

You alway find out something new when you do actual research. I always thought bacon grease, butter, and coconut oil were ideal for frying. The reason? Well, don't they all have rather high smoke points? And isn't that because they are... (more)

Guys, read the question. He isn't asking what you are using to fry your food in. This isn't about sharing your cooking preferences. This is about cold objective data that will contribute to understanding why there exists a contradiction in the... (more)

I am considering joining the axis of EVOO by removing the 2 tbsp butter from my breakfast and changing it out with EVOO (Taken raw). This goes with 4 poached eggs on most days. Any thoughts? I can't take coconut oil as I have issues with it... (more)

Why are you pulling the butter? Have you considered ghee? Could be a good replacement for the butter depending on your reasons. No major issue with 'raw' EVOO, though it will bump up your omega 6 PUFA's a tad; that may or may not be an issue for... (more)

Do you use extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) regularly? Which "paleo" fats do you think are overused in our community, and why? Travis Culp has shown his hand already: butter/cream. I have my suspicions about regular bacon fat use (gasp!). Some... (more)

I mainly use tallow with some ghee. I don't know why people don't like tallow. Mine tastes pretty decent, but I guess it depends on the animal's diet. Good olive oil is so expensive.

Olive oil is superior to most oils out there, but it is not the best as many people believe to be. The whole reason behind olive oil's popularity is because of the media's shenanigans about the Mediterranean diet. However, not only is the true... (more)

This Mercola interview with Dr. Rudi Moerck is quite interesting. These points stood out for me: 1) EVOO goes rancid faster than minimally processed olive oil due to it's high chlorophyll content. 2) Dr. Moerck recommends adding a drop of the... (more)

Is there any reason not to eat canned sardines or mackerel? And do you by them in olive oil? Or 'au naturel'? (sorry, don't know the correct English term) Is the olive oil EVOO, or is it highly processed and thus of low quality? Thank you, Pieter (more)

Another factor to bear in mind besides the oils and added ingredients: the presence of BPA (bisphenol A, a type of plastic) in the inside lining of many cans. This applies not just to canned fish, of course, but also to things like canned tomato... (more)
